Give Barbie the TV instead


Since the TV is too small for her father, the TikToker joked that she gave the telly to her Barbie doll instead. While we totally support regifting items, we also suggest that the father help move the TV inside the Barbie’s house, as we’re afraid that the TV may be too heavy for the Barbie doll to carry.

Hey, one man’s trash is another doll’s treasure.
